The Russell Report
Helping the Troops
For this month’s Good Neighbor award we are recognizing the Stan and Haney D.R.A.F.T. Fund which stands for Direct Relief and Assistance for Florida Troops. Stan Nawalaniec and Mark Haney, radio personalities from 96 K-Rock came up with the idea to raise money to go directly to troops and their families here in Southwest Florida. As of this month they have donated $65,000. 100% of the money donated has in turn, been given to troops and their families. $500 to $1,000 has been given out at a time depending on need.
The requests have been filtered through volunteer military personnel so the most important needs are met. Local resident, Captain John Lazzaro of the United States Naval Reserve leads the charge. The money has helped military personnel from our area get phones to call their families back home, pay bills to keep their families secure and even buy Christmas gifts for their kids. One check allowed an entire unit in Kuwait to have a good meal to lift their spirits. We want to thank Stan and Haney for doing their part for the men and women from Southwest Florida in the military.
